Reacting to a family pet can be a real misery, but there are plenty of products that can help you to feel more comfortable.
Pets can cause all sorts of reactions from wheezing and asthma, to coughing, hives and eczema and streaming, puffy eyes. It isn’t actually the pet’s hair that causes the allergic reactions but the potent allergen Fel d1 (in cats) and Can f1 (in dogs) and their microscopic dander, saliva and urine. The production of allergens increases as the pet matures.
Pets can also get allergies themselves, with symptoms including dry skin and dry cracking paws. When a pet is scratching because of skin irritation, there is an increase in the airborne pet allergens. It is a good idea to treat the pet to keep their airborne allergens to a minimum.
